Japanese Tea Ceremony

Before the Japanese tea ceremony, tea participants wash their hands or sip a cup of water before entering the tea hut, symbolically rinsing away worldly thoughts and problems.

Isn't that a restful, tranquil picture. Sometimes when I am down, I start the water boiling, pray and then sit down with "clean thoughts" and enjoy my tea. For some reason it always tastes just a little bit sweeter.

What a pretty garden fountain. Thank you for causing me to think about how important my "frame of mind" is to everyday life enjoyment.

I wish I had one of those before I enter my house. Now wouldn't that be nice to wash away troubling thoughts.

I have a customer who teaches the Japanese Tea Ceremony at Colorado College here. She told meher costume costs $3,000.00. She is an expert in this field which I know nothing about(I'm into the English)
